Opening Reception: Found Meditations
October 25th, 2013 at 06:00 PM | FREE | firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: 202-965-4601 | Event Website
Please join us for the opening of Found Meditations, on view October 25 through November 16, featuring the recent abstract canvas and paper works by K Silve. Built out of structures of colors interacting with one another, Silve's work, which may at first appear to be spontaneous combustion of color and aggressive brushwork, is rather a contemplative method of building a new language about an experience; how we respond to and interact with nature.
